ADVANCED STYLE follows senior citizens in New York City that have incredible fashion sense and have provided an inspiration for people that extends beyond clothes. From chance encounters on the street profiled in the Advanced Style blog, to getting access to the ladies as they dress for the occasion that is life in New York--filmmaker Lina Plioplyte and Ari Seth Cohen of the Advanced Style blog share the trailer and clips from their remarkable documentary in this BYOD interview, hosted by Ondi Timoner.

FILM & GUEST INFO:
ADVANCED STYLE is a documentary that examines the lives of seven unique New Yorkers aged 62 to 95 whose eclectic personal style and vital spirit have guided their approach to aging. Director Lina Plioplyte follows these fashionable ladies’ daily adventures of living in the city, capturing their most entertaining and poignant moments. From the instant that Cohen first meets these vibrant characters on the streets of New York, it is evident that they are destined for fame. From a glamorous 81-year-old dancer from the legendary Apollo theater, to an 80-year-old owner of a storied boutique on the Upper West Side with a penchant for over-the-top accessories, to a 93-year-old West Village artist known for her colorful ensembles and iconic red eyelashes crafted from her own hair, these ladies offer their own unique perspective on overcoming life’s obstacles with style and grace, proving that age is merely a state a mind. Advanced Style paints colorful and intimate portraits of independent, stylish women who are challenging conventional ideas about beauty, growing old, and Western culture’s increasing obsession with youth.
Lina Plioplyte is a Lithuanian born filmmaker, living and working in New York. Her movie-making journey began as a journalism student in Lithuania and later at CU Boulder. After moving to NYC in 2007 she incorporated her love of fashion and color in her video work for NYLON magazine. Currently she is creating short films, music videos and documentaries about bright personalities. Advanced Style is her feature directorial debut.
Ari Seth Cohen is the creator of Advanced Style, a blog devoted “to capturing the sartorial savvy of the senior set.” He says, “I feature people who live full creative lives. They live life to the fullest, age gracefully and continue to grow and challenge themselves.”
Ari has a longtime interest in clothing and style and a lifelong affinity for his elders. When he was growing up, his late grandmother (a librarian) was his best friend; her “energy and attitude towards life” continue to inspire him. As a result, he couldn’t help but question the absence of mature faces in the fashion world. “I noticed a lack of older people in fashion campaigns and street style sites,” he says. “I wanted to show that you can be stylish, creative and vital at any age.”
